A 3-year-old girl named Samara reportedly received some horrible racist comments after she dressed up as Queen Elsa from Frozen at a Disney-themed event in Melbourne, Australia.
According to BuzzFeed, the little girl waited in line for hours for to go to a snow pit in honor of the film, when a mother and her two daughters told Samara that “black is ugly” and that “Queen Elsa isn’t black.”
Her mother, Rachel Murir, wrote on her Facebook page:
My daughter was in tears when we were at watergardens for the frozen activities as a mother & her 2 daughters told my daughter don’t know why you dressed up for coz Anna & Elisa aren’t Black & Black is ugly & your Black
Not nice.. Still Racism is alive & well in the next generation
She also told the Ballarat Courier:
“I asked the woman what she meant by the comment and then one of the woman’s young daughters screwed up her face, she pointed at Samara and said, ‘You’re black and black is ugly’.”

While Murir said that her daughter cried over the incident, the internet responded in an amazing way, with Australians naming her Queen Samara.
